the changes. as what we can do with it, it is great. is seeing how technological companies and the nsa are doing their own thing outside of what our privacy rights are, he gets really scary when those drones are going to be equipped with cameras and the nsa can tap into those cameras. i would be my concern. it is purely on the privacy front you have concerns about this? caller: not exactly. looking at this logistically, a livery by drones is not much better than leaving a package on the doorstep, which is not there he secure. -- not veryatch secure. i can just watch for the drones are going. who controls the airspace over my house? maybe i don't want a drone flying over my house. the technology is awesome, i think it's great. my one concern is what is the nsa getting into with these companies? are we on the road to fascism? somebody pointed out on twitter -- what do i do with the yellow container? logistically, there are a lot of kinks to work out. i see it is a very steep road. it as a very steep road. it is the undetectable firearms act -- here is dan from wilbert in oklahoma on the

[ applause ] >> so to our friends at the nsa, we say hello, we think ou're doing a great job. in any event, the senators are famous for speaking at great lengths. i won't do that to you today. but let me just say that i have a great deal of admiration for state legislators. i developed that in my own right when i became governor. is senator long still here? senator -- i see pat. pat, raise your hand. senator miller and senator wong was here. i guess he had to step out. but in any event, i was elected governor at the ripe old age of 32. my birthday was in september i matured. i took office when i was 33. i did not serve in the state legislature. i had served as secretary of state. i'd been involved politically. but i had a chance to get to know the members of the senate and the house the way i would like to and i did over the next eight years. and i realized pretty quickly, john, probably the same way in utah, we have a saying in indiana that governor proposes, state legislature, isposes. so i realized we needed to try to find common ground. and i had to challenge right away in my eight yea
of the u.k. guardian newspaper talking about british security and nsa surveillance. bulletsweek on "q&a," are prize-winning journalist david finkel discusses his latest book, titled, "thank you for your service." >> david finkel, at what point did you decide to call this book "thank you for your service"? the gamepened late in after i turned in the manuscript and we were searching for a title. i had another one in mind, which was "the suicide room." when i mention that to the publisher, she said, that is just a traffic title. are you trying to put us out of business? i said, i would read that book. she said, that is really not the right title for this book. we sat and batted it around. there is something about this phrase. i was worried it would come across as judgmental in some way or people would see it as almost bitterly ironic and that was not the intention. it is a much simpler meaning, which comes down to, this is what i got comfortable with finally, if you read the book and get to know the people inside the book, you will have a better sense. if you say this ubiquitous yo
the relationship between nsa and gchq. so i think the question for the head of mi-5 is the one that mr. halpert raised which is what is the forum in which this can be meaningfully overseen with people who have understanding of technology, adequately resourced, and understand the broader questions and broader public interests of civil society which are engaged by these questions. >> you're quite satisfied those who protect your country by gathering information and dealing with terrorist organizations like al qaeda, al shebab and other organizations have not been undermined by what you have done and those who sleep safely in our beds tonight could not be undermined at all by the guardian. >> the biggest threat is when you work a situation where there are people inside the organizations who are so troubled by what they see and are troubled by the relationship between the legality of what's going on and what engineers can now do. what president obama now said what they can do as opposed to what they should do. as long as they have people amongst these hundreds of thousands of people who are so trou
dialogues. host: thank you for the call. you mentioned the nsa. there was a story this morning -- the piece begins with these words -- next is gilbert from tulsa oklahoma. on the question of u.s. global power, is it the climbing or on the rise he echo caller: -- on the rise? caller: to me it is declining. there is a difference between being that between being the strongest and the most powerful. i think we are the strongest but not the most powerful. the nations we have gone to war with are more powerful than we are financially. look at japan. look at south korea, look at germany. we areere at home, losing all kinds of respect at home. we are all over the world shooting and killing people. barack obama was not savvy enough to understand what was going on in washington dc. we will go to texas, ronnie, what is your take on -- on this? on this is in: as long as obama there -- [indiscernible] normal from west palm beach florida on the democrats line. caller: people voted for change. now that we have so much chagnnge they don't like it. host: al from castle tin new york, good morning. to answer
the nsa is listening to everything that we say, you can use bitcoin to avoid all of that. it is a bit of a phenomenon of the state of the world, about your ability to be anonymous online. that is what bitcoin provides. it gives you anonymity. no one can trace that dollar back to me. this is anonymous. so, money is this mirror of exchange. -- medium of exchange. how do we get money? we get money by creating stuff. we get money by building. we get money by being productive. by being innovative. by going to work and working hard. the more productive we are -- in an economy that works right, the more productive you are, the more money you get. money is a reflection of our own productivity. it is a reflection of the work that we do. it is a reflection of our success. money is never -- it shouldn't be -- money is not an end in itself. why do these wealthy guys still work? they could three generations or four generations could try to spend this money. why do they keep working? why do they keep making money? because money measures our success. it measures the amount of value that we create. y
trying to explain to people, the nsa is not listening to french phone calls, not listening to spanish phone calls. i just met with a group from the european union yesterday and there is a bipartisan group in two weeks.els i am leading the delegation. we will have these discussions, because what we do not want to happen is for them to use this -- asx use for excluding an excuse for excluding american companies operating. there would be no reason to do that. candidly, and these are not companies run him a owned, operated we do not plug into them, as you might see in the press, for our american i.t. companies. it just does not happen. we have laws and protection and oversight. i told my allies, we send our intelligence services to the foreign intelligence surveillance court before they a foreign.listen to name another intelligence service in the world that sends them to a third-party court to see if they can listen to the united states. do you think they are having this conversation in china or france or germany or italy? as a matter of fact, the europeans who are screaming the loudest d
about. the nsa disclosures were a big distraction. and whether or not there would be an intervention in syria to consider. any negotiations with iran taking place. he had a lot going on. presidents do and that is not necessarily an excuse but it is a matter of priority and message the president sends inside his administration, how much he wants to know about a certain issue. hes one, it does not seem wanted to know as much as he now would have liked to have known. >> in the last minute here, i want to ask you about recent reports the president is considering sticking around washington dc after the end of his term. what do you think that will do to his legacy? interesting ifbe they decide to do that. he suggested this last week they would stay to allow sasha to finish high school here, about 2.5 years after he leaves the white house area -- house. it is something many working parents think about, what is best for their kids. it is difficult for presidents to stick around washington. only one has done it, and that was woodrow wilson. he did it because he was suffering the consequences
. we spent three weeks trying to explain to people, the nsa is not listening to french phone calls, not listening to spanish phone calls. i just met with a group from the european union yesterday and there is a bipartisan group going to brussels in two weeks. i am leading the delegation. we will have these discussions, because what we do not want to happen is for them to use this as an excuse for excluding american companies from operating. there would be no reason to do that. candidly, and these are not companies run, owned, operated, or we do not plug into them as you might see in the press for our american i.t. companies. it's not happened. we have laws and protections and oversight. i told my allies, do you realize that we send our services to a court? before they can go and listen to a foreign. name another service and the world that sends their intelligence services to a third-party court to see if they can listen to the united states. do you think they are having this conversation in china or france or germany or italy? as a matter of fact, the europeans who are screaming th
